How to Get Legendary Equipment in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey features a tiered item system with the best gear being of Legendary rarity. Legendary equipment usually possesses a number of Engraving and set bonuses which are tremendously powerful. Since Legendary equipment is the best level of items in the game, you are gonna want to get as much of it as you can. Here’s how to get Legendary equipment in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Oikos and his Rarity Shop
Early in the main story you will visit Pilgrim’s Landing on Phokis. In this coastal town, you will meet a vendor called Oikos of the Olympians. Oikos is a specialty vendor that only sells items of Epic or higher quality. Unfortunately for you, Oikos only accepts payment in the form of Orichalcum Ore. Orichalcum Ore is unlike other currencies in the game as it is tied directly to a few activities like daily and weekly bounties (though you can find Orichcalcum Fragments throughout the world). Since Oikos carriers a guaranteed Legendary (which changes every week), he can be a good place to get Legendary equipment.
If you are good at assassinating people, killing cultists is probably one of the best/quickest ways of getting Legendary items. Cultists are introduced when you progress in the story, and they are basically high ranking individuals throughout the world who need to be defeated. Each cultist (and there are 44 total), give a Legendary item on their defeat. Better yet, each Cultist branch’s items are geared around certain builds, so you can pick a branch and use those items to really make your character build more powerful.
Opening Legendary Chests around Greece
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey features a number of collectibles that are hidden throughout Greece. These collectibles directly impact your character’s power and can be extremely beneficial to gather. Unfortunately for you, the locations of many of these items are pretty obscure check out this post highlighting them for you. With that out of the way, the collectibles we want to focus on at this instance are the various Legendary Chests around Greece. Like the name suggests, these are chests that have a guaranteed Legendary inside them. There aren’t a ton of these chests around, but opening them all is a good way of getting a few pieces of Legendary equipment for you character.
Complete Side Quests
While the main storyline of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will give you a few Legendary items for you troubles, to really get after Legendary gear you are going to want to pursue side quests. One side quest that is worthy doing is the “The Goddesses’s Hunt.” This side quest tasks you with hunting Legendary animals across Greece. Killing each animal and returning its pelt to the NPC Daphnae will reward you with Legendary loot. This is just one example of the various side quests that give Legendary items. Other side quests that reward with Legendary loot are:
- They Just Want Cruelty (AKA Arena battles)
Let me know rewarding side quests and I will post them above.
When you are out and about in Greece, you may be tempted to break laws such as stealing or murdering innocent people. I’m here to tell you go right ahead. When you break laws in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, you start gaining a bounty on your head. As your bounty grows, Mercenaries will be dispatched to try and kill you. These Mercenaries drop rewards for their defeat and sometimes the reward is a Legendary item. Get out there and start breaking laws!
